Storyline

Louie the Lilac has cornered the flower market in Gotham City, hoping to gain control over the entire "flower generation." He kidnaps the organizer of their planned flower-in, Princess Primrose, and brainwashes her with his Stupefying Aromatic Spray. Batman and Robin follow a clue to the villain's lair only to be captured by Louie and fed to his giant man-eating lilacs. With the Caped Crusaders out of the way, Louie heads back to the flower-in to continue his evil plan. Alfred, meanwhile, has been alerted to Batman and Robin's situation, and goes looking for Batgirl to aid in the fight. Written by Twenty Penguins

Milton Berle in surprisingly serious mode
1 May 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Louie, the Lilac" introduced a new villain in the person of Milton Berle, a purple clad gangster out to corner the flower market so as to control Gotham City's population of flower children. Princess Primrose (Schuyler Aubrey) is their designated leader, falling victim to Louie's hypnotic boutonnière, to the dismay of her friend Dogwood (Jimmy Boyd) and former high school classmate Barbara Gordon (Yvonne Craig), who thinks the Princess has 'flipped a petal or two.' Barbara gets a good portion of screen time, trapped in her apartment by Lilac henchman Arbutus (Richard Bakalyan, previous henchman of Frank Gorshin's Riddler and Victor Buono's King Tut), but her appearance as Batgirl is simply brief and pointless. Most surprising is Uncle Miltie's total lack of humor in playing the character perfectly straight, rendering this Special Guest Villain as more of a common crook unworthy of Batman, though he'd return in "Louie's Lethal Lilac Time." Crippling the episode even further is the already outdated depiction of the flower children, this broadcast following by only a few weeks the fabled Summer of Love spearheaded by The Beatles and SGT. PEPPER.
